Hanoi (VNA) – The Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) on March 4 opened a training course on archives knowledge for 30 Cambodian officials at the Hanoi University of Home Affairs.

The course forms part of a Memorandum of Understanding signed in late 2013 between the MoHA and the Office of Cambodia’s Council of Ministers, in which the Hanoi University of Home Affairs and the National Archives of Cambodia (NAC) will work together.

During the one-month course, Cambodian archivists will be trained in restoring, conserving and digitising archives documents.

MoHA Deputy Minister Trieu Van Cuong said that archives work holds an important role in society.

The training course confirms the ministry’s wish to intensify international cooperation in archives, especially with countries within the region.

NAC Director Y Dari thanked the MoHA for organising the first-ever training course for Cambodia, and affirmed that participants will acquire knowledge that will better their ability to fulfil their assigned tasks when they come home.

Vietnam has sent officials to train and support Cambodian archivists since 1986.-VNA
